#1309 Fortune Cookies

Show 1309 Sunday 19 September
Watch today's show at YouTube or BlipTV.

I bought some fortune cookies to see what the future had in store for me.

On the back of the box it said something about fortune cookies being originally from China.
But Wikipedia says they’re from Japan. And these particular cookies are actually from Australia.

I opened the packet and I lined the cookies up on a plate. There were fourteen. I felt lucky already because on the box it said approximately 12.

I chose a cookie, broke it open and read my fortune:

You will be awarded some great honour.

It was alright I guess … but I wasn’t hugely excited by that future, so I decided to open them all and choose the best one.

I found five that I quite liked. And this was my favourite fortune:

Soon you will be sitting on top of the world.
